About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Cleopatra: Riddle of the Tomb (PC)

The country is divided by civil war pitting Cleopatra's supporters against those of her brother and husband, Ptolemy, who is ravaging the country. In this climate of terror, Thomas, a young apprentice to Akkad, Cleopatra's astrologist and astronomist, falls in love with his Master's daughter. One day, in horror, he discovers that both Master and daughter have been kidnapped ....

This is where your journey begins, taking you to some of Egypt's most legendary sites to solve a conspiracy that runs deeper than anyone could have ever imagined.

Created by Kheops Studio, the game development of Cleopatra: Riddle of the Tomb is based on historical research of Egyptian culture. Authentic monuments such as the Lighthouse, the Library and the city of Alexandria have been incorporated into the game and the multitude of game puzzles reference Egyptian culture and science.

"Egyptian themed games have always been a favorite among adventure gaming fans," said Byron Gaum, Global Product Marketing Manager at The Adventure Company. "Cleopatra: Riddle of the Tomb offers players a realistic exploration into history with an engaging story, a host of mysterious characters and varying gameplay experiences based on the astrological sign that a player chooses. It's a must-have for every adventure game fan."

Cleopatra: Riddle of the Tomb for Windows has an ESRB rating of T for Teen and will sell for a suggested retail price of $19.99 USD.
